AND THE WINNERS WERE. . .
LOS ROBLES GREENS G.C. - 09/03/2020: This venue offered an unexpected challenge with
Craig Fehrman
Mr. Fehrman
tough pin positions, gnarly rough, and deep yawning bunkers that yielded only a half-dozen scores in the '80s, 7 more in the '90s, and the remainder of the field on the wrong side of the Century Mark. On the upside, three quarters of the field finished "in the money" with Craig Fehrman's $42 topping that list by siphoning 1+1/2 shares out of the birdie pots. The Super Low Gross winner was Gordon Crook who added a solo birdie award for his $36 payout. Another solo blind-birdie share went to Jim Sabbe added to his Partners 1st Place tie for a $33 take. Next was Miguel Romero at $32, gleaned from his pair of !st Place ties for both Porter Low Gross and Partners along with the day's Low Net prize. Bruce Simon took 1st Place in Low Putts with an unusually high 32 pops for a $20 payout. Bob Stone continued his assault on the annual Porter Low Gross competition by tying Miguel for 1st and then added another tie for 2nd Low Putts to pickup $17. The final 1/2 birdie share sent $14 to Tom Knickerbocker while $13 found John Moskoff as Low Net runner-up and tied for Partners 1st Place. Ted Winship's $11 earnings came from a 3rd Net & that same tie for Partners 1st. New Member Mark Vaughn also joined that crowded 3-Way tie for Partners 1st Place and the 3-Way tie for Low Putts runner-up to pocket $9. Final participant in those Partners ties was Jeff Sable worth Five Bucks. The Super Gross runner-up spot paid out $4 to Brian Oblak while another $4 found Marilou Miller tied for 2nd Low Putts.
WOODLEY LAKES G.C. - 09/10/2020: Our 4 Foursome field featured 13 Members augmented by 3 Guests, two of whom availed themselves of portions of the wager pots. Atop the money list at $41 was Jeff Sable, tying for 1st Place in Porter Low Gross and for 2nd Place in Low Net plus a 1/2 share of the entire Designated Birdie booty. Brian Oblak claimed the other 1/2 of that birdie loot and added the Super Low Gross Award and Low Putts runner-up for a $38 total. The Low Net was dominated by Mike Belson's stunning 58 Net which led to a Partners 1st Place and a $22 payout. Tied with Mr. Sable for both Porter Gross 1st and Low Net 1st was Miguel Romero who pocketed $15. Craig Fehrman's $14 take home came from a Partners 3rd Place and a Blind Draw Birdie he shared with Marilou Miller's guest, Johnnie Whitaker while another of MM's guest players, Tony Johnson snatched the Low Putts award with just 26 pops. Mark Vaughn partnered with Mr. Belson for 1st Place and $6 while another $6 went to Bill Lewis for a Net 2nd tie and Partners 3rd. In a rare occasion we find our esteemed Tournament Director Bob Stone at the bottom of the heap settling for only a Partners runner-up spot and Four Bucks.
OLIVAS LINKS G.C.a - 09/17/2020: The name atop the headlines is Brian Oblak whose sizzling 75 Gross sprinkled with multiple birdies appropriated nearly two-thirds of this day's entire wager pots amounting to a stylish $111 that was derived from taking both the entire designated birdie pot AND the two blind-draws along with the Super Low Gross award, Low Putts runner-up, and a tie for Partners 3rd Place. The next winnings amount dropped to the $24 sum pocketed by Jeff Sable with First Places in both Low Putts and Partners. The Porter Low Gross title was captured by Tom Knickerbocker worth $16 when added to his Partners 2nd Place and tie for Low Net 3rd. An identical $16 found John Moskoff taking First Place in both Low Net and Partners. The remaining payouts were just a dribble here and a dribble there starting with the $7 to Bruce Simon for 2nd Low Net and Partners 3rd(tie) followed by a pair of $4 awards to Mark Vaughn as the Porter Gross runner-up and to Bill Lewis in Partners 2nd Place. The Super Gross runner-up spot and a Partners 3rd(tie) sent a paltry $3 to Jim Sabbe while Marilou Miller got Two Bucks for tying Low Net 3rd and one thin Dollar found Val Mayer joining that busy tie for Partners 3rd Place.
WESTLAKE G.C. - 09/24/2020: This date marked our first outing in the 2020 Autumnal Season featuring Tom Knickerbocker atop the wager winners list at $43 accumulated from his tie for Porter Low Gross, a pair of 2nd Places in Low Net and Partners, plus a solo blind-draw birdie. Mark Vaughn joined that tie for Porter Low Gross, then claimed his own solo blind birdie along with a Partners 1st and Low Net 3rd(tie) for a $41 payout. Brian Oblak's 71 Gross led all scoring to earn $36 from the Super Low Gross award, a solo blind birdie, a tie for Low Putts runner-up, and Partners 3rd Place. An even Twenty Bucks went to John Moskoff who posted the day's Low Putts total and a Partners 2nd Place. The Low Net winner was Marilou Miller coming in with a 7-Under-Par 60 worth $14. A pair of matching $12 sums went to Val Mayer and Jim Jacobs when Val shared in one of the blind draw birdies and tied for 3rd Low Net and JJ ended up in Partners 1st Place, tied for both 2nd Low Putts & 3rd Partners. The remaining half of that shared blind birdie sent $11 to Jeff Sable while Bob Stone's only marker was a Single Dollar for a Low Net 3rd Place tie.

He is expected to make a complete recovery and should be on the DL for six to eight weeks -- Bob Planck checked in to let the group know that he misses everyone, but as sole caregiver to his wife Vickie, who suffers from COPD, he has trouble finding the time to get away for a round of golf with his buddies. We miss you too Bob, and wish you and Vickie the best -- Val Mayer celebrates a birthday on 10/29.
